Mollie Hemingway, the conservative senior editor from The Federalist, asked a question on Twitter.
“At this point, I genuinely believe reporters/pundits truly don’t understand Donald Trump, his rhetoric, his administration, etc., and aren’t just pretending to be idiots,” Hemingway wrote. “But my question is why they continue to be paid to cover a man they clearly don’t understand in any way.”
Mollie, they’re not idiots. They’re journalists, highly educated, adept at social media, Washington networking and social gatherings, a class that has deferred to the establishment for generations.
